about: I am Graham Mitchell, a Developer Tools Software Engineer for HomeAway in Austin, TX. I am also the author of "Learn Java the Hard Way" and "Learn Object-Oriented Java the Hard Way".

My wife has a PhD in nutrition and is also a registered dietitian. She taught nutrition at the University of Texas for many years but now teaches only at Austin Community College. She is much happier there.

Prior to becoming a software developer, I spent twenty years teaching Computer Science at Leander High School -- from 1997 through 2017.

The high school I taught at is a pretty good school; consistently ranked near the top 5% of public schools nationally. I had a lot of students who are exceptional but most of my students were regular kids with no particular aptitude for programming. I taught over 2000 students.
